Now the war is over                      

sorry all the fighting is not

done for there is a good deal

to settle here at home.

But when I get my civil clothe

with that piece of paper

of delightfull words you discharge

There will be no more bully beef

     or mess room tea

So nothing is going to put the

     wind up me

a good time I will have

     + invite all the nice girls to tea

 and a  nice warm bottle in my nice

     snug bed

+ a nice soft pillow for my

     big thick head

when I get my civies on

     + on my way for home.
